Travel experience to Bangalore, the Silicone valley of India

I recently made my first visit to Bangalore, the Silicone Valley of India. It is the most vibrant city in India and there are lot to see. A few days are not enough to cover the important places of attractions in this city.

This was my first journey outside Bihar and I was very excited. My train was from Patna Junction Station at 6:30 PM. There was a journey of exactly 52 hours as the train was late by 4 hours. My uncle was there to receive me at the Bangalore railway station.

The first thing I noticed after reaching Bangalore was the climate. The climate of Bangalore city was fantastic in the month of May with some rainfall, which was really strange for any North Indian people.

My uncle came at the railway station with his Hyundai I-20. This was my first experience that someone came to receive me with his car in a station. I was really enjoying every seconds of my life in Bangalore city. After a journey of 35 minutes from the railway station, we reached the apartment. In the house, my aunty and 2-kids were present, awaiting me. As it was quite late at around 11:00 PM, we did not waste our time and went to bed after enjoying my favorite dinner - chicken and rice.

A trip to Bangalore is always a memorable one. Visitors from various places of the country and abroad would attract you from the busy Majestic centre near the Railway station itself. The organised Subways and the flyovers at the Kempe Gowda Bus station are the symbols of the modern traffic regulation techniques. The much populated city with regular floating of visitors always looks with glamour because of its heritage centres and worth visiting places. Also known as 'Garden city', Bengaluru is spotted for the famous Lalbagh botanical gardens. Students and visitors prefer to visit this place to know various varieties plants and their growth. The famous Visweswariah Museum is a feather in the cap of the city, I would say and the trip would not be complete if one fails to visit the museum. This science museum gives a complete knowledge of various inventions and the model of the first plane designed by the Wright Brothers would be marvelous to see. A huge statue of Lord Shiva on Kailasgiri model and the Dwadasha lingas inside the designed hill near Kemp Forte show room attracts regular devotees from local and regular visitors.

It is a hill resort and the view of the surrounding from the top would be an eye catching sight. An ancestral Manjunatha temple on the hill is a place of worship here.

On the other side of the road, opposite to Iscontemple, Hanuman Mandir is another place of worship where a very large statue of Lord Hanuman lies. The Bull temple in Bangalore near Malleswaram and many other places are there to visit. The M G Toad, the Brigade road and the Majestic circle are good places of marketing/purchases.

What attracts me the most in banglore is, it is a treasure for shopping lovers. Go to SP road and you've all thing electronics available el' cheapo. Go to Chikpet and it's a women's paradise with the shops selling Sarees and other ladies dress. But, above all don't you feel the city is now awfully congested and the climate is no more friendly?
